I was an athlete growing up: figure skater and field hockey & lacrosse player, so I was burning so many calories I could eat whatever I wanted and stay thin. So I should have been happy with how I looked right? Far from it. Standing in front of the mirror looking at areas that I did not like. Then one day I skipped dinner. When I woke up the next morning I felt so hungry that I felt sick, because I felt sick I did not eat breakfast and it spiraled from there until my body could not take it anymore. I have done a lot of growing since then and have made it my mission to help others get past it as well. Am I preaching that I never look in the mirror and nit-pick? No, those thoughts are always there but it is how you harness that energy back into feeling good about your self and in your own skin.
This is why I launched my website ExerciseYourBeauty.com, I felt like every where else I was being bombarded by "Lose the last 10 pounds," "Get the body you want now," etc. If beauty radiates from the inside out...why do we stress over the outside without stopping to think about what is going on inside? Find respect and love for yourself now, use fitness and nutrition to reflect that, and welcome health into your life!
